All photographs between a033645 and a033666 were taken at the celebration of Saka Dawa and the Gyantse horse race festival. The two festivals run back to back with the former starting on the 15th day of the four lunar month and the latter on the 18th day of the four lunar month. In the Iron Bird Year, these festivals fell in June 1922 of the solar calendar. For a better understanding of what L/Col. Parker though when taking these photos, one should [go] to letter #9 or #10.
